My Review of The Design by R. S. Grey

*I received an ARC for an honest review*


A full-length standalone from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey. There are overlapping characters from The Duet, but both books can be read separately. 

Five minutes until the interview begins.

Fresh on the heels of her college graduation, Cameron Heart has landed an interview at a prestigious architecture firm.

Four minutes until the interview.

She knows she's only there because the owner, Grayson Cole, is her older sister's friend.

Three minutes.

For the last seven years, Grayson has been the most intimidating man Cammie has ever had the pleasure, or displeasure, of being around.

Two Minutes.

But the job opportunity is too good to pass up. So, Cammie will have to ignore the fact that Grayson is handsome enough to have his own national holiday.


After all, she shouldn't feel that way about her new boss. And, he will be her new boss.


"I'm not intimidated by you," I said with a confident smile.
"Perhaps we should fix that, Ms. Heart. Close the door."

She has done it again.  I immediately fell in love.
It's hilarious, it's sexy, it's cute!

Grayson Cole and Cameron Heart have an immediate attraction and throughout the first part of the book we are tormented with the pull they have for one another.  Will they get together?  Will they not?  It was a tug of war game and it had my emotions all over the place.   The tension was unbearable at times.  I just wanted to slap them both.

I enjoyed the humor and wit that was brought to Cameron.  It totally worked with the calm and cool Grayson.  She is also strong and independant.  She works hard to prove she is worthy!

Grayson has been behind the scenes for years watching and taking care of Cameron. (Without her knowledge) Being the long time friend of Cammie's sister it's hard to not be in her life.   But what happens when her presence is around him daily.  Will the pull they have for one another be what puts him over the edge?  Can Cammie break down those walls and will Grayson truly open up and let her in?

This was a refreshing Love story. With no real drama.  No scandals.  Just two characters that will take a piece of your heart.  Two characters that want to find love and struggle to allow another in.

"He was the Mr. Darcy to my Elizabeth Bennet, the Prince Charming to my Cinderella, and most importantly, the Ron Weasley to my Hermione Granger."

5 stars!

I couldn't resist submitting to him. I still can't, no
matter the cost.

I thought I was fine, I thought my life was ok. Until I met
him. One night of erotic abandon blew open the door to the prison of my life
and there was no way I wanted to lock it back up. I couldn’t, not when he kept
coming back. But I knew there would be a price to pay. There always is, I had
been warned. The past always comes back to haunt you especially when it
promised it would.

Your body is my playground and I want to play.

Life is good. I have control, I like having control. Until I
met her. I thought that one night of her deliciousness would be enough to
satisfy me. I was wrong. I wanted more, there was something about her, she was
different. And now I was losing control, there was no way in hell I was going
to lose.

*Intended to be read as a stand alone but first in a series,
there are no cliffhangers.

*Disclaimer: explicit sex scenes, intended for mature
audiences. Be prepared to sweat and your heart rate to accelerate.


You want it, you crave it, STRANGER will ruin you for all
others, no one else can titillate, tantalize, and excite you like this.

Review from Sweet N Sassy Book A Holics Reviewer Michelle

WOW…..JUST WOW…….. I abso-freaking-lutely LOVED “Stranger”
by N.M. Catalano. Elizabeth has been held captive by her own fears of her
abusive husband, Santoro, returning to find her. Her life consists of working
and going home, never leaving her apartment for some fun. Every time she has
been interested in someone her ex finds out and causes more damage than good,
so for now she stays to herself. She has few friends and no one knows what
really happened with Santoro. She decides one night she is going to finally go
out and enjoy Happy hour with some friends. This is the night that changed her
life forever. Insert Marco (giggles)…….he is at the same bar Elizabeth is at
and he can’t keep his eyes off of her. One night of hot passionate sex is all
it takes for Elizabeth to realize she needs to come clean about her past, but
doesn’t want to ruin what she has with Marco. Marco is everyone’s dream of a
BBF (swoon) – he is gorgeous, smart, funny and has a little secret of his own.

N.M. Catalano does an outstanding job in keeping you glued
to your book. Her writing is extraordinary and she does an incredible job in
keeping the book flowing- before you know it the book has ended. Ahhh….the
ending was perfect and my favorite part as you see what Marco has been hiding.
I stared at the words “The End” willing it to give more pages. I cannot wait
for the next book “Switch”…(squeal)

I am forever a fan of Catalano and am truly excited to see
what else she brings us….Please hurry up with the next one. You rock!

It was Saturday evening, and Tara was torn.
She didn’t know if she could go out on their movie night and act like
everything was normal. What bothered her even more was she really was jealous
of Kevin and Amy going on a date, and she had no reason to feel that way. She
finally picked up her cell phone and typed in a text message to Kevin.

Tara: Hey Kev, not feeling well. Just gonna stay home.
Maybe next month.

She put her cell phone down and stared at
it as if waiting for it to miraculously chime to confirm he had left a reply.
After several minutes of sitting there and seeing no response, she turned on
the television and unmuted it, then laid back and sprawled out on the couch.
She was in lounge pants and a tank top, already dressed for bed. The time alone
was good, although she was not looking forward to hearing about his date. She
flipped through channels, until she came across a station that just read
Breaking News. She turned it up, stopping on the channel.

“Another grizzly murder has taken place today. We’re
reporting live on the corner of Broderick and Schaeffer Street, where the body
of 23 year old Derek Jeffries was discovered in the woods two hours ago. He was
reported missing forty-eight hours earlier. There are no suspects, as of yet.
However, the police have asked the public to come forward if they witnessed
anything. One eye witness has reported she saw a man with a red hoodie and the
trim of a blue baseball cap coming out of the woods, just an hour before the
body was discovered. The witness was not able to recall any other information
about the identity of the possible suspect. Reporting live, this is Parker

Tara turned off the television. She
couldn’t believe there was another murder, and so soon. Their small town had
rarely experienced any violent crimes in the twenty-two years she had grown up
there. In fact, she couldn’t recall a time there was ever a killing. She heard
the doorbell and got up to answer it. When she opened up the door, Kevin stood
gawking at her. He looked her up and down.

“It doesn’t appear you are ready to go to
the movies.”

“Didn’t you get the message? I’m not going.
I sent you a text,” she replied, moving away from the door.

He stepped into the house.

“I got your message, but I didn’t think you
were being serious. I know how much you want to go to this movie. It’s a
romantic comedy…isn’t it?”

She heaved a sigh. “Yes, but…”

“You have no reason not to go.” Again he
looked her up and down. “Other than the fact you’re dressed for bed. But you
can fix that quickly. Come on, I want to take you out.”

Tara groaned, frustrated.

“Whatever,” she said. “Give me ten

She hurried up the stairs and into her
bedroom to look for something to wear. She finally settled on a simple
University of Alaska t-shirt and a pair of jean shorts. She put some lipstick
and mascara on, brushed her hair quickly, and headed back downstairs.

how was your date yesterday?” she asked with some sarcasm.

Kevin laughed, turning to her before
opening the front door. 

“Tell me the truth. It really bothered you,
didn’t it?”

Tara was thrown by his question. She
figured he’d leave well enough alone. She looked at him in mild disdain,
rolling her eyes as she searched for an answer.

“It didn’t bother me. I just…” She paused,
knowing she wasn’t telling him the truth. “Maybe it bothered me a little bit.”
She hesitated. “But, just a little.”

He laughed. “I’ll take that.”

He waited on the porch for her to lock up,
and put his arm over her shoulders as they headed to his car.

“Let’s just put it this way. After yesterday,
I’m sure Amy knows where we stand.” He opened the door for her, and she met his

“How so?” she asked, smiling.

“It’s possible I might have mentioned your
name a couple of times during the conversation.”

“A couple?”

“Five…six times max, but that’s all.”

She snickered, getting into the car. She
felt relieved, but all the more curious to hear how it went.


Sitting in the theatre next to Tara, Kevin
found it difficult to ignore his feelings for her. He regretted not telling her
how he felt. It probably wasn’t a good idea to take her to a romantic comedy
movie. As the couple made out on the big screen, he pictured them as the two in
the starring roles. He glanced at her out of the corner of his eye, and could
see she was probably uncomfortable as well.

At one point, he could swear she groaned
next to him. Kevin perked up, now more aware of his erection pressing against
his zipper. He shifted his body in his chair, but nothing seemed to help. He
reached his hand into the popcorn container, trying to take his mind off of it.
That didn’t help. His hand grazed across Tara’s. He froze for a moment, and
then allowed his fingers to slowly stroke hers. He was longing to touch her. He
hoped she felt the same way.

His fingers traced hers up and down and
when he looked over at her, their eyes met. The moment their eyes connected, Tara
was torn from the trance. She pulled her hand out of the bucket and turned back
to the movie screen. The moment was lost.

Kevin tried to turn back to the screen and
watch what was going on, but the couple was now doing a lot more than kissing.
He moaned as he saw their foreplay, knowing a sex scene was imminent. This was
going to be too much to take. He just knew it. He shifted again in his seat,
accidentally brushing her leg. His hand trailed down her bare leg and instead
of quickly pulling away, he allowed it to linger. What was even more shocking
was she didn’t try to move away.

As his hand slid back up her leg, he let
his fingers slip past the seam of her shorts, gently grazing her thigh. Their
eyes met and she made no attempt to stop him. He drifted up a tad more, feeling
the silk of her panties and then falling back. His hand pulled out from under
her shorts. His anxiety mounted, as did his excitement. They never looked away
from each other. Kevin looked at her with shock and pleasure as she moved her
hand toward him and cupped her hand on his jeans, right over his throbbing
hardness. Kevin moaned, closing his eyes and taking a deep breath. He opened
his eyes to find her staring at him.  She
appeared as lost in the moment as he was.
